, the unemployment rate is lower than the national average. it is 7%. late yesterday, i visited both the romney and obama campaign headquarters in columbus. when i asked people why they're giving their time and what people they're talking to are telling them, the economy is still the central issue in this campaign. >> i think the economy is not doing well and i think romney is the guy that can turn it around, gets back on track, get things going again for starters and i'm worried about the budgets, the deficits. all my kids are in their 30s and we need the bubbling economy to move them along. >> a lot of people are hurting right now. but the president's ideology is what we need. >> i would say that the stimulus package was a really big success and i thought that, you know, i want government to play a role in our lives and i have a feeling that romney doesn't think that it should. >> let's met bring in jonathan althar. welcome to my home state. let's talk about the economy and we put it in the context of the latest poll. jonathan, is this an economy election in ohio? >> it always is. this is the
with the biggest whopper of this campaign. i mean we've seen a lot of big lies coming from the romney campaign. i mean on a lot of different topics right? particularly mitt romney trying to have it both ways or three ways on almost every issue. you never know where he really stands on any issue. the biggest lie of all is this lie in the last couple of days, mitt romney is trying to sell the people of ohio -- it doesn't look like they're buying it. the latest poll shows president obama up five still in ohio. but we know what's going on, right? no doubt about it. president obama is winning ohio. largely because he saved the auto industry and so many -- tens of thousands of jobs in ohio depend on the auto industry. so many families from the auxiliary businesses. in fact, the unemployment rate in ohio is lower than it is nationwide because the auto industry is back. thanks to president obama. g.m. is back making better cars than ever before. chrysler reported an 80% increase in their number in the third quarter of this

i picked that 250,000 number, different economists say different things. both campaigns, the romney campaign says it a lot. the obama campaign agrees, say they can create 12 million jobs if four years. that's three million a year. that is 250,000 jbz a month. 80,000 more than we're seeing. they both assume, by my calculations, they assume a 4% gdp growth. we're at 2%. now increasingly, surrogates from both campaigns have told me they can do it with a 3% gdp rate which is what we might actually see next year. now former congressman, you know him, vin webber says fiscal and government restraint is the key. listen to what he said. >> we're not seeing any element of that from this administration. no fiscal restraint. only higher taxes on capital as well as on labor. that's a bad mix. >> so that's the answer that the republicans are putting forward. fiscal and government restraint will kick up your gdp growth to the extent you'll create more jobs. ken, do you buy that? >> well, i -- looks to me like their plan is to cut taxes. you hope you get really fast growth. i think the deficit woul

learn a lot about campaigns and what's moving by both sides. clearly, when mitt romney runs a g-bad like that, it is clearly false. he knows the auto industry is clearly hurting him and he has to go on offense. this goes to jonathan's point. we know the auto bailout is a big issue in ohio because of mitt romney's ads. the problem for him is that it's a challenge to do a demonstrably false ad. there is a negative consequence to this. when you do an ad like this, you get days and days of newspapers attacking you. >> pinocchio stands on fire, all of that thing. >> you have cleveland and cincinnati papers, front page articles saying he is not telling the truth about this. it has been a high-risk strategy. i don't know if ohio has gone from 3 to 6 as the polls seem to indicate. i think the risk he took in being dishonest bawas a bad ris for him to take. >> what is it that you are hearing personally on the ground in the midwest right now? >> well, you know, you talk to people and, you know, again, i think it is a question of who they think will stand up for them? they look at a guy like mitt r
supporters to vote for revenge. i'm asking you to vote for change. >> both president obama and mitt romney are still campaigning their nonstop. here is why, the latest poll shows ohio pretty close. the president had made it to the 50% mark. mr. romney has 47% of likely ohio voters. the nbc wall street journal poll taken during the same period shows obama over the 50% threshhold, at 51% and mr. romney at 45%. and with the 18 electoral votes, you can see ohio is the battleground of the battleground states. you can see what happens in the middle of the state in the capitol of columbus, my colleague is there in the state. so don, what appears to be what you're hearing there? what are people focusing on? what is the criteria people are using to make up their minds if they have not already? >> reporter: well first, i think that people think that governor romney and the president have taken up residence here in the state because they have been here so much. they will make a couple of more stops before the next 72 hours. this is the state, to really make up their minds it is the economy, the econo
flexpen.com. >>> in a final push, both candidates are touching down in several states each day. tonight, mitt romney is in colorado. tomorrow, president obama will be here in ohio. it's another of those battleground states we have talked about so much. cnn is in all of the hot spots. in colorado, we're live. you talked to "mountain mommas"? who are the mountain mommas. >> reporter: in political speak, they're the overcrowd. here, in this battleground state, a third of the registered voters are registered independents. drill that down even pfurther ad one of the key demos? suburban mothers. with the crunch of fall leaves beneath jogging strollers, this group of suburban colorado moms self-described "mountain mommas" hit their first lap chatting about the final leg in the race for president. >> i'm very torn. >> so you're undecided? >> i am definitely undecided. >> reporter: that makes tina the coveted surprise for both parties. >> knocks on my door, mail, to the tv ads. i put a note on my door that said "there are children napping in this house and i guarantee you you woent get my vote if you wake th
further evidence that the u.s. economy is continuing to heal. so both the white house and the romney campaign weighing in. >>> the last jobs report, of course, is not without controversy. some even accused the obama administration of cooking the books to bring the unemployment down. misguided accusation, for sure. the method used to calculate the numbers can be confusing. with so much on the line we'll explain exactly how it works and talk to the secretary of labor about today's report. busier highways.see usn on once empty fields. everyday you see all the ways all of us at us bank are helping grow our economy. lending more so companies and communities can expand, grow stronger and get back to work. everyday you see all of us serving you, around the country, around the corner. us bank. this is hayden. he's five years that's elizabeth. and that's skyler... and his mom, nancy. they're just a few of the californians who took it on themselves to send you a message about what they need to restore years of cuts to their schools. prop thirty-eight. thirty-eight raises billions in new revenu

for the romney campaign, his praise of the commander in chief storm response has been oversized and unsensored, downright christy-en. this display of bipartisan has created confusion on both sides of the aisle. in today's "new york times" maureen dowd writes that, quote -- white house officials seem a bit flummoxed by christie's bear hug. they speculate christie who always puts chris fi first has decided it's better for his presidential ambitions to be a maverick blue state governor with a democratic chief executive exiting in 2016 than to have president romney and tea party republicans in congress pulling him to the extreme right for the next eight years. christie for his part shrugged off the notion of political calculus in an interview last flight. >> the president does things that deserve praise, i will give him praise. and when the president does things that deserves scorn i'll give him scorn. when someone asks me an honest question i give an honest answer. how has the president been to deal with? he's been outstanding to deal with on this and i look forward to see him tomorrow. >> mitt r

romney, seems to be okay as far as disaster relief is concerned. both of these men, the governor and the president are trying to stay above politics for now at least, trying to do what is best for the people of new jersey and new york, some of the other states obviously that have been affected by this disaster and it is a real disaster. all of these leaders, they're working around the clock to do the best they can under these difficult circumstances. >> i think we have some of the comments that governor christie made. let's play that. >> i was on the phone at midnight again last night with the president, personally. he expedited designation of new jersey as a major disaster area. i was on the phone with fema at 2:00 a.m. this morning to answer the questions they needed answers, to get that designation. and the president has been outstanding. >> wolf, this really had an impact on the campaigns for both president obama and for mitt romney. >> the president not going to campaign tomorrow. i think he will resume his campaigning on thursday. it is sort of froze at least at the top lev
is less than a week away. and sandy has blown both candidates off course. here is jonathan karl. >> reporter: mitt romney transformed the planned ohio rally into a bid to support relief efforts. >> we won't be able to solve all the problems with our efforts this morning. one of the things i learned in life is you make the difference you can. >> reporter: it has all the trappings of a traditional campaign event, stage, big american flag, campaign music, lots of romney supporters. but you also have over here canned goods and supplies that people have brought for victims of the storm. the storm put romney in a bind. while the president can lead relief efforts -- >> this is something heartbreaking for the nation. >> reporter: there's not much for romney to do beyond encouraging supporters to pitch in. with fema working overtime, democrats are hammering him for what he said at a debate when asked if some of fema's responsibilities should be turned over to the states. >> absolutely. any time you have an occasion to take something from the federal government and send it back to the sta
much for the daytime report now. it's great having you both times of day. ron allen in point pleasant beach on the jersey shore. coming up, spin game from the republicans. romney's expanding the map, he says, advertising now in tv in michigan and pennsylvania and forcing team obama, the other side, to play defense. from the democrats, romney can't find the votes for the battleground states, so he's throwing wild passes where he can't win. the new polls out today suggest the democrats are right, this is a distraction, not a reality. also, that romney jeep advertisement we told you about yesterday was so dishonest, so misleading that chrysler and gm executives themselves are pushing back. people expect politicians to trim the truth a bit, but it's possible that mitt romney has just crossed a line that not even the most uninformed voters will accept, that jeep is moving to china. and look who's back, joe isuzu, speaking of dishonesty, this time campaigning, kind of, for mitt romney. >> i'm joe isuzu. guys, vote for mitt romney and you'll get a free binder full of women, you have my word

[ romney ] i'm mitt romney and i approve this message. >>> the ipad mini is fshlly on sale. the buzz wasn't nearly as big. this was the store in bethesda. just one person waiting outside. this verse is two inches smaller than the regular ipad. the cheapest version is $329. there are versions with more storage space and 3g capability. the ipad mini is expected to battle the amazon kindle, kindle fire and google nexus 7. >>
the race in place. there is less enthusiasm for obama this time for sure. romney has more than mccain had in 2008. >> bret: then in north carolina, what about the machine on both sides? >> we have had 1.4 million early voters. the obama organization never closed up shot from 2008. critical in north carolina. one thing that makes north carolina interesting is that it has the largest african-american population of any of the battleground states. >> bret: last word, craig. machine in wisconsin? >> yeah, well, wisconsin is the highest turn-out state of the battlegrounds and it's very organized, engaged mobilized state as we have been watching in the last two years. i think both sides know how to maximize their vote. it will be a test for democrats, because clearly people are not as energized as they were four years ago. but i think we're going to see a sky high turn-out. it will remind people of 2004, which is a very close election. >> bret: you want to make predictions for your states? okay. crickets chirping here. okay. rob, joe, craig, thank you very much. we really enjoyed the panels. tha
one woman claims she kept trying to vote for romney, and it kept coming up obama. and, of course, both campaigns have literally thousands of lawyers standing by for potential legal challenges. john fund is co-author of "who's counting," a book that examines the problems of our election system. john, already we're hearing about all these issues. i mean, we hear this every time, but this is from one voter, for example, in ohio who says it took her three times on the electronic touch screen of hitting mitt romney before the selection was accurately recorded. she said it kept coming up barack obama. she said, look, it's not me, i know how to do the voting, i'm well aware, it's something wrong with the machine, and i don't like it. and then you hear the electoral, you know, the polling station workers saying voter error, we'll look into it, it's nothing to worry about. >> it's sad because bureaucratic bungling undermines confidence in our election system, megyn, and i'm glad that machine has finally been fixed. i think the real overall problem we have in ohio is you're not going to have to
and from mitt romney. you can go the cnn.com and i mentioned this before and it bears repeating, both of these gentlemen were kind enough to write op-eds specifically for cnn.com. these were exclusive to us. and we are thrilled that they both did it es esh pi pecially same time. it lays out the vision for america. you heard the president say it come dos s down to two fundamen different views of america. hopefully if that confuses you, hopefully four days before the election they can tell you what they feel represents your voice. i do hope you do this before you go to the polls, and you do go to the polls. in the event that you do or don't tune into cnn for election coverage night. this is what we do really well. our team will break down the results state by state with the expert analysis. and that expert coverage will be heralded by wolf blitzer on november 6th starting at 6:00 p.m. don't miss it. oh...there you go. wooohooo....hahaahahaha! i'm gonna stand up to her! no you're not. i know. you know ronny folks who save hundreds of dollars switching to geico sure are happy. how happy a
on the tv. it's in person as well. both candidates have been making a ton of visits to the state. president obama will be here in briscoe later on this afternoon. governor romney will make one more visit to virginia in the next three days before ballots are cast. big part of mitt romney's catch has been to military voters. the two biggest cities in virginia are virginia beach and norfolk. they both have enormous military populations. mitt romney has been telling them that if he is elected president, he will stop to sequester those automatic defense cuts. listen to this. >> the strong american military, so strong no one would think of testing it. so strong that people would rather meet us on the bargaining table than on the battlefield that is essential to us and to the world. unlike the president, i will will restore that funding to our military. >> mitt romney has also been in virginia to help george allen get elected to the u.s. senate. allen is a former senator and governor of virginia. and he is trailing right now in the real clear politics average of polls to another former governor of
and join me and we'll both be bagged. thank you for being here. >> thank you. who should get credit for ohio's economic improvement? should president obama or john csack and waiting for romney, who is speaking in colorado at a campaign stop and when he does, you will hear his comments live right here. humans -- even when we cross our t's and dot our i's, we still run into problems. namely, other humans. which is why, at liberty mutual insurance, auto policies come with new car replacement and accident forgiveness if you qualify. see what else mes standard at libertymutual.com. liberty mutual insurance. responsibility. what's your policy? >> ohio is experiencing a economic recovery president obama will take credit for that as he campaigning here. my next guest says the prize aught to go to someone closer to home. governor, it is it great to center you here. unemployment rate in ohio was 9 percent and dropped to 7 percent x. one of the few places in the country where that is it happened. why is that happened. >> we are making it job friendly again business friendly again. we balanced
calls per day from both parties and it has dropped back. you're lucky to get one a day. i am thinking mitt romney but the main reason i called that earlier a guy called in about the government payroll. that gives obama automatically more people on the ground. host: we are running out of time. talk to us about the situation in north carolina and where it seems to be leaning and if it's true that one side or another has picked up stakes and moved on to somewhere else. guest: there has been disputed about this recently. obama has not been to north carolina since the convention. mitt romney has a bigger lead their than he does in any other potential swing state. the obama campaign continues to insist they're not pulling out of north carolina. they sent the vice president and first lady there but it is clear they are not putting as much resources there as they are into other swing states. they can afford to keep the staff there for the most part and not actually pull up stakes. i think quietly you hear from democrats that they are probably not going to win north carolina. host: have been t
worn out the mute button on my own television. it is razor tight race right now. both sides are claiming they have the edge. i talked with ohio senator robb portman, a republican, leading surrogate for the romney team. about how things are shaping up for governor romney eight days away. senator portman, good morning. >> good to be with you again. bill: on sunday you said we're about dead-even in ohio. that would mean governor romney is trailing. is that the case in this state today? >> no. i think it is a sty right now and i think momentum is on our side. in the polling before the debates we were down five or 10 points and we've had a steady movement our way ever since. poll came out on sunday i was referencing showed the race to be dead-even, tied at 49-49. that same poll only a few weeks ago showed us five points down. energy and enthusiasm is on our side. our folks are work harder than ever. grass-roots movement is harder than ever and momentum in is our direction which you always like. bill: in 2004 president bush beat senator kerry by 118,000 votes? is that the model fo
